In the current Isuue of EQ, there is an article concerning micing a leslie cabinet. Unfortunately, the author falls into the novice trap of micing the top horn on each side of the cabinet. Just think about this for a minute, and you will realize that doing so aims BOTH horns at the mics at the same time. They should be at 90 degrees, on 2 adjacent sides, not opposite sides. You then get a stereo image that pans from one side to another, thereby avoiding the feeling that someone is shaking you forward and back.

There is only one horn in a Leslie. The other one is plugged and has no driver.
